Program aims to 'Get the Lead Out' of school drinking water | 10News WTSP
Hillsborough County and a state lawmaker have a plan to make water your kids drink in school safer.
The public/private partnership is called “Get the Lead Out.” It puts water filters on all drinking fountains in the 136 Hillsborough County schools built before 1986. That’s when lead was widely used in plumbing materials across the United States.
Wednesday, crews installed the first three filters on drinking fountains at Shore Elementary Magnet School in Ybor City.
